"As Republicans set the stage for the party’s California convention this weekend, local officials are prepping for Burlingame to come into focus as the center of the nation’s political universe, with Donald Trump at the axis. Trump and his fellow conservative presidential hopefuls John Kasich and Ted Cruz, along with his recently announced running mate Carly Fiorina, have committed to speak at the event held in the Hyatt Regency hotel along the Bayshore.

....  Chuck McDougald, chair of the San Mateo County Republican Party, said he expects the convention to be the largest held locally, as an unprecedented amount of supporters and protesters have already announced their intent to participate in the weekend’s festivities.
“This is the most exciting convention we’ve ever had,” said McDougald, who has been a part of hosting four similar events in Burlingame previously.
 And though it is reasonable to expect all sorts of excitement surrounding the event, McDougald said he expects the nature of the convention’s festivities to be standard procedure, despite the notable guests. “There won’t be any chaos inside the hotel,” he said. “It will be politics and the convention as usual.”
